A Different Weight Loss Tip

By Terje Brooks Ellingsen

This is no diet but a weight loss tip that is a little different than most of the weight loss tips around. It is targeted to people suffering from food addiction, especially overweight people that love to eat unhealthy, fat food in huge portions. It is a psychological weight loss approach for changing food or eating habits by erasing the mind pattern that holds the old food habits and replacing them with a new and healthy pattern. Your job is to repeatedly perform an exercise where you associate strong positive feelings to losing weight and negative feelings to eat your favourite food. Here is what you do:

I

Imagine yourself overweight and heavy, eating your favourite food; hamburger, french fries, potato chips, bacon or whatever. Think of this food as garbage that you have picked out of a trash can, that someone else has not been able to finish and has discarded. With cats and dogs eating side by side with you, hoping to get what you don't finish. Imagine that the hamburger meat is not cooked to your satisfaction, possibly under-cooked and cold besides, with a smell less than inviting coming from all the added condiments which are running from the sides of the partly cooked, partly eaten burger which may have your stomach turning upside down. Think of all the nasty, unhealthy things that may have happened to your "less than good for you food before you got to it. Perhaps horse meat or even dog mean was mixed together with toxic fillers and flavouring added just to mislead you into believing you're eating fresh and tasteful food". Your heavy stomach is growing bigger and bigger, it's about to blow up, your heart rate is accelerating, you having problems breathing, your stomach starts to hurt tremendously you feel pressure from in your stomach like the rotten food wants to come up Are you still hungry? Are you nauseated? Do you want to vomit? Go and vomit! Keep on elaborating on this image until you can't stand it anymore - only your fantasy sets the limits.

II

Now, make a list of all kinds of fresh, healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, various sorts of grain, nuts and seeds. Imagine these foods arranged attractively on your plate. Imagine yourself eating this food as a healthy, sound, slim and strong person radiating your soundness, joy and great self image. You feel better than ever before. You are a successful person that succeeds in everything you do. You are eating living, fresh food from Mother nature, no flavours added, no chemicals only the fresh, healthy food that God has provided for you. You look at yourself walking or jogging along the beach, people smiling at you and you smiling back as you experience a feeling of energy and the joy of being alive. You see yourself having conversations with people you meet in a nice and trustful atmosphere. You know you have an excellent looking, healthy and strong body and that you only eat food that make you strong and healthy; tasteful and fresh food directly from nature. You're feeling great, you're feeling secure with yourself and you're loving life.

Keep on elaborating on this image as well.

Continue to eat as you did before but practice these exercises every day; when you find yourself about to eat what you know is not beneficial to attain and sustain a healthy body, imagine the first practice mentioned above before you eat and after that takes effect, take your imagination to the second practice. Once you start with a routine of eating better, eating healthier, soon the second practice will not be in your imagination but become a reality. It is vital that you repeat this exercise as often as needed. If done consistently and focused, you will surely change your food habits for the better. While the first imaginary practice may have been a bit gross, it is up to you and your imagination to create what will to the trick for you.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
